We had just driven through a thunderstorm on motorbikes from Taroudant and were cold wet and hungry. It was still raining when we went in search of food in the Madina. Although we were in a great hotel we wanted something with local atmosphere. We walked around for ages trying to find somewhere in the rain. The key issue is... More

Wow! What a find. A proper family restaurant. And like any family there are arguments, awkwardness and utter warmth. A lot of people may not "get " this place. Mum's, mothers, kids run it and it's all the better for it. I had beef mrounzia, a new dish for me, of slow cooked beef, caramelised red onions, cinnamon and nuts.... More

I highly recommend this cosy restaurant / bar. The vegetarian fare is tasty and locally priced and the proprietor, Zanob, offers a warm and friendly welcome to foreign visitors. With the addition of music entertainment by Moroccan performers, it's a perfect place to end the day. 5 stars.

When I asked the owner what was good on the menu she answered "everything!". I agree. The food is delicious, recipes of the owner's mother. We enjoyed the night with atmospheric live traditional music and the pleasant service of the owner. Highly recommended!

We were tempted into this restaurant because they serve alcohol and, frankly, it can be hard to find in Morocco. Once in there we were greeted effusively by a young woman who gave us a menu, although it transpired that not everything on the menu was available. We ordered two very different chicken dishes and beers and settled down to... More
